In a small saucepan, add the apple cider. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer. Simmer until the cider has reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Whisk in the maple syrup and keep the heat set on low to keep warm until you are ready to serve.
In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk. In another shallow bowl, whisk together the sugar, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and salt.
Preheat a large non-stick griddle over medium heat. Spray with a non-stick spray.
Taking one stick at a time, dip in the egg mixture and then toss in the pumpkin pie spice mixture. Place the sticks directly on the griddle. Repeat this step for the rest of the sticks, working in batches if necessary. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side and then remove from heat.
Serve the french toast sticks immediately with apple cider maple syrup. Enjoy!
